They are taken from the translation page recommended list, which uses 
2.2 for most things and HEAD for some new stuff. Getting it back into
gnome-cvs is a case of someone approving the strings, ensuring they 
are in UTF8 format, and CVS committing them

Agreed - and avoid collisions

You must be using a UTF8 locale, UTF8 aware terminal (konsole in kde3,
gnome-terminal with vte in Gnome2.2, xterm), and its a bit funky if
you don't have a suitable font.

localedef -i cy_GB -f UTF-8 cy_GB.utf8

from memory, will generate the cy_GB.utf8 locale for you if your 
system lacks it.
